Idaho Must Pay Fees in Abortion Lawsuit

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The state of Idaho has again been ordered to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in attorney’s fees after losing a court battle over the Legislature’s latest anti-abortion law. The latest bill — which comes in a lawsuit over Idaho’s so-called fetal pain law and other abortion restrictions — brings the state’s total tab to more than $1 million spent defending abortion laws since 2000. In the most recent case, U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill ruled on Thursday that the state owed more than $376,000 to attorneys for Jennie Linn McCormack. The Pocatello woman successfully sued and overturned some abortion restrictions last year after she was charged with a felony because police said she had an illegal abortion. The state doesn’t have to pay until an appeal is decided.
